Centrelink follow up details
Universities: Posted 7-8-06 Deadline - No Deadline
At the University Information Evening, I said I would provide information for students interested in applying for the Independent Youth Allowance. The basic details are that students would have to earn at least $17,667 in an 18 month period beginning from the day of your last HSC exam to qualify as soon as possible. Make sure you sign out of school on that day as documentation. You will not be eligible until May 2008 so, if you are deferring, you will not be able to receive this allowance for the first few months at university. Please factor this in to your costs. The first step you must take (both students and parents) is to contact Centrelink on 132490 to discuss your individual situation. You can also visit the Centrelink website. On the website there is a rate estimator which may help you. If you go to the Search part of the Centrelink site and type in "rate estimator" you can find it.

CSU New Clinical Science Course - dentistry & Med
Universities: Posted 2-8-06 Deadline - No Deadline
CS advises for Pre-medicine and pre-dentistry: To combat the on-going critical shortage of health practitioners in rural and regional areas, Charles Sturt University (CSU) will next year offer a rural pathway program for students who wish to study medicine and dentistry: the Bachelor of Clinical Science. The Bachelor of Clinical Science has been developed with curriculum specifically designed to meet the expectations of graduate entry dentistry, medicine and other health programs across Australia. However, it is unique in that it provides a specific education pathway from the undergraduate CSU degree into the University of Sydney graduate entry programs for eligible graduates. CSU’s Orange Campus has linked with the University of Sydney (USyd) to develop the program which will allow students to live in a rural environment while completing their undergraduate degree and lead them into graduate entry dentistry (Bachelor of Dentistry) or medicine (Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery)at USyd. There are a total of 20 committed places (10 medicine and 10 dentistry) for CSU graduates from a rural and regional background who meet USyd entry requirements. A rural and regional background is based on the premise that the student has lived in a country area for at least five years (not necessarily concurrently) which has a population of no more than 100 000 people. On applying for the course through UAC, students will be required to complete additional selection criteria in the form of a questionnaire which may be downloaded from CSU’s website and posted to the Course Coordinator. Graduates who are not successful in gaining a place in graduate health programs through the rural pathway program or based on their individual merit can utilise the content of the degree as the basis for employment in the health or medical research sector or further study. For example: articulation into allied health programs (physiotherapy, speech pathology, nutrition, podiatry, medical radiation science, medical science etc); medical/dental or scientific research; employment in the public health system (epidemiology, health system planning; health screening, health promotion, employment in private clinical and/or hospital technologist positions (renal dialysis, respiratory function measurement, exercise testing, cardiology). I will soon be receiving a comprehensive brochure detailing the Bachelor of Clinical Science, accompanied by a copy of the additional selection criteria questionnaire. For further information please call 1800 334 733, email inquiry@csu.edu.au or visit www.csu.edu.au.

Campion College
Universities: Posted 2-8-06 Deadline - No Deadline
Campion College News Flash. Great News for Aspiring Campion Students - Early Acceptance Scheme. On Friday of last week Campion College approved a scheme that will allow Current School Leavers to be accepted on the basis of results obtained prior to sitting the NSW HSC (or interstate equivalent). This scheme could allow offers to be sent out to successful applicants before they sit their final school examinations. Campion has made this available only to students who are studying at a school in an area designated as being disadvantaged in terms of educational outcomes. These are in areas that include Western Sydney and regional and remote areas. Applicants will be assessed on a written statement, an interview, and results in senior high school up to the trial NSW HSC (or equivalent) in Humanities-type subjects, such as English, History and Religious Studies. The normal Campion entry UAI minimum is 70.00 and with this scheme, results in the Humanities-type subjects will be assessed to see if performance in these subjects only equates to that expected of a student with a UAI level of 70.00. Application forms for the Early Acceptance Scheme will be made available shortly and will be able to be downloaded from the Prospective Students site of the Campion web page.



Western Sydney Student Scheme



A separate scheme has also been approved that will allow students from Greater Western Sydney to have five (5) extra points added to their final UAI when applying for the Bachelor of Arts at Campion College.



For more information on the scheme see our website under prospective students or call 02 9896 9300.
